Gerry O'Sullivan

Posted: 14 February, 2020

European policy experimentations are trans-national cooperation projects led by high-level public authorities from the Programme Countries. They involve testing the relevance, effectiveness, potential impact and scalability of policy measures through parallel field trials in different countries, based on (semi-) experimental approaches and common evaluation protocols. By combining strategic leadership, methodological soundness and a strong European dimension, they enable mutual learning and support evidence-based policy at European level.
